Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: LET'S SHOW SOME GOOD OL' DEADHEAD TOLERANCE AND ACCEPTANCE HERE!!! or is this a Grateful Dead frat house?? Please spare me the hypocrisy.

i find hypocrites all over this site and others too. after all, by a 2 to 1 margin. the grateful dead was a cover band of its own. the 2 to 1 odds, if you wanna call it that, is the FACT the dead played twice as many covers as they did their very own music. so why would a real deadhead mock any other cover band esp a gd cover band. the music must go on. does it matter who is playing it? does it matter whos promoting it? as long as it gets out there, who really cares. half you guys never even seen jerry and his back up band called the grateful dead. personally i prefer jerry with any one else but the dead. but thats just me.

I get your point, nagdot...but I'm not sure it's true the Dead played more covers than originals esp. by a "2 to 1" margin.

If you go album by album you'll find the originals outweigh covers by quite a large margin.

The Dead certainly did a number of covers and virtually made them their own (GDTRFB, IKYR, Don't Ease, Death Don't, just to name a few), but I don;'t think it's accurate that they did more covers than originals.

All the more reason to stick to 68: as we noted previously, only in this year were the vast majority of shows 95% pure unadulterated DEAD. Think of setlists from summer of 68 thru summer of 69: some shows had only a single cover tune!

There, I am morally ahead of all the rest by my rejection of the "coverband eras" of the DEAD!

a good, long, rambling read for a gray monday morning while waiting to hear from the vet about my cat's blocked urinary tract. poor little bugger was in a boatload of pain last friday.
